School is in session - or just around the corner - for the nation's youngsters. Now is a good time to explore how you can help bring aviation to the classroom.
AOPA has created a book especially for pilots and secondary school teachers.
PATH - Pilots and Teachers Handbook - effectively connects math, science, physics, history, and technology to the basics of general aviation. Pilots of every age and experience level are encouraged to share their enthusiasm and knowledge of flying with students.
Through tips and basic resource ideas, AOPA's PATH to Aviation walks pilots through the planning and preparation needed to arrange a successful classroom visit or a field trip to a local airport and serves as an expert resource for teachers and students.
Teachers can take advantage of the wealth of information provided by AOPA's PATH to Aviation to bring these basic topics straight into the classroom. Eleven easy-to-follow modules highlight common questions people often ask about GA and tie activities to secondary school topics. Teacher and student worksheets are provided.
